Why Interpol may launch a man-hunt for Wizkid

A court in Uganda has issued an arrest order on Nigerian pop star, Wizkid and his manager, Sunday Are.

The court directed the Ugandan Police to collaborate with the International Police (Interpol), to arrest both of them.

The International Criminal Police Organization INTERPOL, is an intergovernmental organization.

The body is a collaboration of international police from all nations of the world.

It was established as the International Criminal Police Commission (ICPC) in 1923.

The order to arrest Wizkid was issued by Magistrate Baligeya Moses Mufumbiro on Friday.

Justice Baligeya said Wizkid should be arrested on or before January 16, 2017.

This follows a suit filed by Muwema and Co, solicitors for Face TV Ltd.

Wizkid and his manager are being accused of failing to honor a contractual agreement it reached with its client.

The plaintiff said Wizkid failed to attend a concert scheduled for December 3 in Kampala, after a payment of $60,000 was made to Are.

It also alleged that it paid $5,000 and $3,000 respectively as brokerage fee and for the days they would stay in Uganda.

Muwema claims Face TV accrued expenses of over $300,000, as more than 25,000 Ugandans had already bought tickets for the concert.

Earlier this month, popstar issued a statement canceling all his shows this year and January 2015 for health reasons.

It is yet unknown if Wizkid communicated his absence to the Ugandan crew who had already sold out tickets to tens of thousands.
